5:00am
good monday morning it's 5:hundred i am megan pringle. we want to let you know we are experiencing some technical problems which is why we weren't on at 4:30 and we have engineers work on the problems keeping us from bringing you a normal news broadcast we normally do. our main focus is to keep you informed and safe. that being said, the weather and the traffic are two big stories and we will give you a weather report and traffic send you back to programming as we work on this. stay with us this morning because we could be up in to the normal programming at any point. i will send you to lynette charles who will tell you that it's foggy out there. >> you are right. that's what we are dealing with. we have a dense fog advisory that is in effect until 9 this morning. and we can see it for the entire viewing area. so as you head out the door, this morning, this is widespread dense fog.
5:01am
not that patchy fog that we have been used to seeing. right now temperatures are coming in at 44 degrees in perry hall and glenelg and 43 in bel air. other spots around sparrows point and shadyside temperatures well above average as we go towards the eastern shore easton at 53. we should be at 30 degrees now for the low temperatures. we are well above that. this 47 degrees you are seeing in shadyside should be the high temperature for this time of the year. so you can see that temperatures are on the mild side. the big story is the fog this morning. and we have some drizzle and it's going to be a nasty type morning and it will continue as we go into the afternoon. so maryland's most powerful radar mainly dry as of now. but as you step out the door, don't be surprised if you do see some drizzle if you feel that drizzle the drops are too small for the radar to pick up on that. we will look at satellite portion of this with plenty of clouds hovering across the area. back off towards the west, and
5:02am
to the north. we have a line of showers that will begin to move in here going through the morning also the afternoon. so, you heard me say dreary, that's going to stick around for a while today. back further to the north and west, across the midwest they have been dealing with blizzard conditions across the area. we won't be dealing with any of that going through time. temperatures will drop off behind the frontal boundary this cold front that will move through tonight but before it does so we will do mild air inhere this morning and afternoon as this warm front works in across the area. also behind this cold front we will get high pressure building in so we will begin to see more sunshine in the forecast as we go into tuesday, wednesday. especially thursday and also your friday. but this is is a look at future trend and what's going to be happening as we go there time. clouds will be with us for the day. off and on showers. it's not a continuous rain event. but we will have the fog coming back into the picture areas of fog as we go into the afternoon and then we will dry out and we will be seeing plenty of
5:03am
sunshine in the forecast for us. but as we plan our day, we are going to be waking up to that fog. temperatures at 48 degrees by 6:00. by around 9:00 we can see temperatures at 56 and going up from there. but we will have the chance for the showers in the forecast by lunchtime temperatures at 62 degrees. so, you're stepping out the door. what do you need? well, take the rain gear with you and also take a jacket. you don't need the biggest coat because the temperatures are going to be well above average. let's get the hyperlocal forecast. 36 at tawnytown. 64 in sykesville. and no big coat needed there. and then we head into odenton. a possibility 67 degrees there. pasadena around 66. more of the same northeast this morning. bel air 65, parkton coming in at 64. and cockeysville at 66 degrees. let's slide over towards the eastern shore where we are looking at 66 in chester and also easton. 65 in rock hall and elkton at 65 degrees. so you might not like the way
5:04am
the day looks, but, you will like the way the day feels. as we go through tonight, temperatures coming in at 45 degrees and cloudy skies still again not going to rule out a chance for spotty showers in the forecast for you. and then by tomorrow, conditions improve in terms of looking outside with more sunshine in the forecast. but, we will drop the temperatures off to more seasonable levels. still above but we won't have mild temperatures we will be dealing with today as we head into weeps, a little chillier and more seasonable at 48 andthen this is what we have thursday into friday. sunshine and next chance for rain rolls back as we go into sunday. let's check the abc2 timesaver traffic with lauren cook. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. 65 degrees. i thought it was supposed to be december. it doesn't feel like it out there. as lynette said it's pretty dreary day. the roads are really slick due to that rain we received and fog is going to be the main concern. dealing with reduced visibility across the region.
5:05am
right now if you are traveling in white marsh you are not look at any delays on 95. altogether, it's going to take you 14 minutes southbound from the beltway all the way into the city. and if you are using 695 in parkville, the foggy conditions are really going to persist as we check in and look at harford road. notice a lot of reduced visibility out there and it's extremely important for you to turn on low beams and take it slow because you need to. it's pretty bad out there. you can't see much. and here's what 695 looks like on the northwest corner at old court road. traffic moving along altogether it's going to take you 11 minutes to travel the outer loop from 795 down to 95 and inner loop is nice and clear as you make the drive from 795 up to 83. if you are using 83, the jfx going to be clear of delays but again that foggy condition will persist and as we check in and take a look north of this scene up in hunt valley, 83 at shawan road can't see much in the camera. in fact, i will show you this
